Twitalyzed in Portland

April 3, 2009


I read Silicon Florist, Rick’s Turoczy’s blog. I’d highly recommend it if you haven’t checked it out.

Yesterday I stumbled onto a post about  Eric Peterson’s Twitalyzer and a geo mapping it has done to call out PDX twitter influencers. You can read the post here:

It was cool to be on the list (#67). I’m new to the community and appreciate the mention.

Congratulations to Eric on the continued adoption of his cool new tool. It’s clearly useful now and seems to get better the more he invests in it and with more people added to the database.

Eric’s comment on Rick’s blog makes a nice joke about the nonsensical locations so many have in their Twitter profiles…As Eric points out, Twitalyzer searches based on people using Portland in their location. I’d echo his comment and encourage people to update their Twitter profile location if they want to be included.

All said, it is moderately ironic for me to have made this list being that I don’t live in Portland yet :)

Regardless, it has been a pleasure beginning my introduction into the local PDX tech community. I’ve met some wonderful and really smart people in the past few months. I look forward to actually, physically, moving to Portland once we sell our home in Seattle (DM me if you know a buyer!).

If you are interested there is a real time Twitalyzer list for Portland available here:

It only shows top 10 so you have to scroll to see rest.



Ack. Sorry for the tardy reply. Thanks so much for the mention!

WebTrends has already stepped up in a number of ways to make it the poster child for “how to quickly and honestly engage with the Portland tech startup community.”

We’re excited to have you down here and happy to see WebTrends renewing its presence here in town.

Please keep up the good work. We greatly appreciate it.
